Who woulda thunk there would be scripted punk rock musicals made for online tv or is that an oxymoron? Well, knowing that Tim Armstrong from Rancid is behind this, will surely lend some credibility and make folks want to check it out. Along with his new work with Jimmy Cliff on the reggae legend's latest offering, he continues to push his own personal boundaries and be a true energizing spirit of creativity.
Tim Armstrong of Rancid has announced a new original web series called Tim Timebomb's RockNRoll Theater. Its creation marks the first scripted original programming featured on VEVO. "Doing a show centered on musical theatre isn't really a stretch for me," says Armstrong. "For 25 years I've been making music and collaborating with friends, been involved in hundreds of videos, and it's really just a direct extension of my world." Armstrong adds, "VEVO is the perfect partner to premiere the show because their platform is extensive and will bring lots of eyeballs to our show." Dante, the pilot episode scheduled to air Oct. 21, stars AFI frontman Davey Havok, guitarist and vocalist Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, and actor Robert David Hall who is known for his extensive work on CSI.
